Classic: Secret Knowledge of Poster Design - Saturday, March 10th at 3:00pm

This is the workshop which started a revolution in creative business education. Create your own layouts with free software and graphic design resources. We promise, you WILL use what you learn here again and again.

Skills you need to be seen. Make great looking posters (and other layouts) using free graphic design resources.

We're excited to offer this CLASSIC SECRET KNOWLEDGE workshop. Secret Knowledge of Poster Design was the first workshop we ever offered. It's where Secret Knowledge got it's start and it's still just as useful to ANY creative entrepreneur today as it was years ago.

Here is why:  Creative businesses always need promotional graphics.  Whether it's a print poster to promote a performance, or a small advertisement for your services, or an image with your logo on it that needs to be a certain size and shape because Facebook just changed everything again - the ability to quickly do simple layouts is a skill you'll call on again and again.  

This workshop focuses on sharing three very useful graphic design resources, including a powerful layout program called Scribus - which is free to use, runs on all major operating systems, and is a much better tool than a word processor or photo editor. 

It could well be the most useful workshop you ever attend. 

The workshop is free, but we ask attendees to consider making a $10 - $25 donation at the door, and to please arrive on time.

This workshop will be taught by Secret Knowledge's founder, Noah Kleiman. 

Use THIS Facebook Event to invite friends to join you. You'll get more out of this workshop if you roll up with a friend or two.  

Join us at Rogue Ales Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery - Barrel Room, 928 SE 9th Ave
